The event supports the following three charities…

Ad Relief of Greater Los Angeles: Our reason to exist is to lend a hand and help people get back on their feet again. The Advertising Industry Emergency Fund is a volunteer organization made up of advertising and promotions people brought together to help their colleagues in times of life crisis. If you or an industry peer has an accident or experiences some form of life crisis, is unable to work and can’t afford outstanding bills—and have exhausted all personal assets — AIEF is there.

Multicultural Advertising Training Program (MAT):
MAT Program opens doors and provides opportunities for multicultural talented college students that may not be available to them otherwise.  We do this so that our interns may experience, develop within and, at the end of the day, diversify the advertising industry. By placing interns with industry experts, the MAT Program gives future leaders a unique education through relationship-building and industry-specific knowledge to help them build a career. The world is a diverse place. Our agencies should reflect that. For more information please visit us at

Light Bringer Project: Has been engaged in programs which have supported youth in greater Pasadena and across Los Angeles County. Our model is not to deliver arts teaching in the classroom, but to create and provide real-world learning experiences. These programs are designed to inspire, forge mentorships, build communication and life skills, and help students lift themselves up to higher learning and vocational opportunities.
